5th grade gift , originally uploaded by DianthusMoon.
When I was in 5th grade, about 1970, my teacher’s fiance was a cartoonist (on the side I think). Every week for about 20 odd weeks, he would make each of us a drawing with a little help from Miss Brown about the person he was doing the cartoon for. I remember waiting ‘forever’ for this one. I was very pleased with what it said too. And it was written in all block ‘letters’. Pretty cute! And I will say Miss B. was one of the sweetest teachers I ever had.
What a great letter to get as a child! Can definitely see why you’ve kept it all these years.
Wow, that is awesome! What a neato keepsake, too. 🙂
What a beautiful treasure!! love the cartoon!
